Overview

Set out across the Andaman Sea for a day-long tour of Krabi’s "4 Islands," and watch the tide uncover the slender spits that join the jungle isles. Explore the coastline by traditional longtail boat, and leave the day’s first footprints on fine, powdery beaches. Snorkel in a sheltered lagoon, linger in the swaying shade of coconut palms, and enjoy a picnic lunch on a pristine beach. Stroll between Tup Islets and Chicken Island, then cast off again toward fantastical rock formations that soar above the tropical sea.
  • Discover the 4 Islands of Krabi on a day trip by longtail boat
  • Spend your day swimming, snorkeling, and soaking up the sun

Worst day trip in Thailand
Pavel_E
, Apr 2022
At 8:30 we were picked from our hotel at Ao Nang. At 10:30 we finaly boarded a long boat with 60 more people. At 11:00 we were back near Ao Nang (Railay beach where we go every day). We walked 40 minutes (20 minutes in direction) to the actual beach. At 12:30 finally started our "full day" trip to the... couple of the 4 islands. We passed near more, so probably we were even on a 10-12 island trip. If I haven't been on the same trip from another company, I would have had really wrong impression. I will be more careful to avoid trips from the same company. On the bright side, the staff was nice.

Dear Pavel Thanks for your honest review. During Songkran holiday in Thailand there were many guests on that day which led to a delay in the departure time. As described in the tour details and itinerary the first stop will be at Pranang Cave Beach which is part of Railay peninsula. The next stops will be at different islets and beaches on the "4 island group", including Koh Poda, Chicken Island, Tup Islets (Koh Mor and Koh Tup). Depending on the tides and sea conditions, you will stop at different spots, for example at Thale Waek where you can walk on a sandbar during which resembles only during low tide.

I could not find fault in any part of the four island tour. Pickup at our hotel was on time. We arrived early at the pier, so there was a little delay in departing but it was expected. The tour guide, Coke, was exceptional. For only learning English from YouTube, he ended up being more literate than many native English speakers I’ve come across. Each of the 4 islands had a little different appeal. The snorkeling was lots of fun. Lunch was provided for at the last island, so have a snack with you if you normally eat lunch earlier in the day. The distance travelled between each island didn’t seem too long, but we were having fun with the guides on the bow of the boat. A word of caution— if you have difficulty climbing up or down ladders, recommend the speed boat tour. The long tail requires you to be a bit agile when getting into or out of the boat depending on the tide.

Pretty Islands but crowded and short stops

For the first 3 islands you only stay 30 minutes. Poda Island is an hour and a half. Snorkeling is over a dead coral reef so nothing to really see. Crew is nice and helpful.

Excellent trip

We had a lovely time on our 4-island trip. The weather had meant the sea was quite rough so we didn't get to the cave beach (I can't remember the name) but we did get to spend some time on chicken island beach. The longtail boat wasn't the easiest to get on or off, it was done by a small ladder. Luckily this provider does have a jetty which makes it easier to get on and off at the start and finish but the bits in betweeen you have to get on from the sea. At one point I did think I might have to stay in the sea forever as it was really high to get onto the ladder after snorkelling in the sea. I did manage it and I am larger than most but quite strong. The food was nice and islands were stunning. Would definitely recommend.

"What Guide"?
Cindy S
, Aug 2019
These are beautiful islands and beaches with clear warm water for swimming. Tasty lunch. Unfortunately very crowded. That was expected. What I didn't expect was a very poor guide with no communication skills. We were left to wander. Nothing to see in the water. I wouldn't call it a snorkeling trip. Bring ear plugs as those boats are loud.

Dear Guest, Thank you for your review and sorry to hear that you were unhappy with our services. The 4 islands tour is one of the most tourist attractions in Krabi. So there are very crowed all year round even if low season. The operator offers an English-speaking guide for this tour, but sometimes you cannot hear well in crowds. Warm regards, Rinda

Very well organised, it’s a big tour group company organising it. Boats were new, private pier was great, hotel pick up was based on location (3 hotels max for mine... so other hotels far away from mine were picked by another vehicle). View was awesome! Worth the money. Food was surprisingly decent... we expected sandwiches but we got thai food! The highlight was the snorkelling!

Joined 4-Island tour by Traditional Big Longtail Boat on 22/4/2019 (Orange team), very nice, friendly, humor and very caring tour leader. Good English communication and nice simple lunch & fruit. Highly recommend to my friend going soon for their honeymoon holiday at Krabi.

Really enjoyed the islands we stopped at. Lovely beaches and caves. Food, fruit and water/juice supplied and was very nice. Engine fumes can be a little overpowering if you have to sit close to it, but that didn't spoil a great day out.

Friendly staff but rushed
Davide_S

Overcrowded from the start, with barely enough time at the islands to enjoy any of them. We were waiting at the pier for nearly an hour to get on the boat, then couldn’t enjoy the 3 islands which are connected by a walking beach in the sea when the tide is low (by the time we got there the tide was too high - perhaps more organisation and we could have done? However, staff were really friendly and helpful. Lunch was poor.

Glad we booked via Viator!

No regrets visiting the 4 beautiful islands, which was the highlights of our 5 days Krabi holiday. Highly recommended to visit the islands! 2 of us originally wanted to book a private long tail boat, but decided to book a tour with Viator just before we flew to Krabi. Cost wasn't so much a concern, mainly because we want a safe and easy trip with a good English guide, since we are not strong swimmers in sea. A few things amaze us after booking this tour via Viator :1. very effective communication via email. They sent emails reminding us to provide hotel room no. for easy identification for the hotel pickup service. Another email reminded us the pickup time and provided detail information like which company was to pick us and how to contact them. On the day of pickup, they were late. We decided to try and sent email to Viator (free hotel wifi). They responded INSTANTLY giving status of the pickup! That certainly offered assurance and helped save some mobile phone charges!2. For 2 people, seems like it was cheaper to book with Viator compared to booking a similar tour on-the-spot in AoNang, even if we add the additional 400THB national park fee per person. Note : there are many local companies running this kind of tour from what we observed.3. Our tour was provided by a big local company Nang An Travel & Tour, who was extremely well organized and have it's own private jetty with drinks and snacks station! Yut was our guide. He and his team were fantastic throughout the day, helping and serving everyone, making sure we were all safe and well fed! Icy cold water available all day. The snorkeling gears looked new and well maintained. They were professional and responsible. When we returned to the jetty, Yut also helped to make sure everyone gets on the right transport back to hotel.Our tour was about 40-50 people. It was during the peak Xmas holiday period. Big group but we were not too bothered by the crowd. Everyone was friendly and on-time. The thing we dislike most was the hotel transfer service where they dangerously over-packed passengers into the songthaew! It would also be nice to have more time on 1 or 2 islands. We were given about 45 min per stop. Overall, it was a good and adequate first-time-see-it-all tour.

Good price compared to on the spot or other agents booking

Price offered by viator was very cheap compared to local travel agencies nor even over the counter price. Also the tour provider Nang An operates all tours very well. Well managed pick up and drop to hotel. Their guides are also very friendly and helpful. Lunch organized by them is tasty and unlimited water bottles . Overall very Happy with this tour.
